Default [HOWTO] Linux ADB, fastboot, mass storage

Thanks to screaminbug for clue about udev rules.
On Android 2.x modified adb file may be no longer needed, 1.x probably does still need it though - try without changing adb file first.

1. Download and unpack somewhere Linux SDK: Android SDK | Android Developers and install Platform Tools with SDK Manager that you can run in terminal with
Code:
tools/android
(there should be some way to install them in console with that tool, can't check it out now since I'm not on Linux at the moment... try 'tools/android help')

2.Download fastboot for Linux: HTC - Developer Center and adb: http://floe.butterbrot.org/external/adb.gz. Copy adb&fastboot to the sdk/platform-tools folder; cd to that folder in terminal and add necessary permissions:
Code:
chmod +x adb
chmod +x fastboot
3. In folder /etc/udev/rules.d/ create files(don't forget to replace user with your username!):
50-android.rules
Code:
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="18d1", MODE="0666", OWNER="user"
90-android.rules
Code:
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="04e8", MODE="0666", OWNER="user"
4. Refresh udev rules:
Code:
reload udev
5. In file /home/user/.bashrc (replace user with your username) add line:
Code:
export PATH=${PATH}:/home/user/android-sdk-linux_x86/tools:/home/user/android-sdk-linux_x86/platform-tools
Replace /home/user/android-sdk-linux_x86 with your sdk directory path.
6. Log out&in to the terminal/start new terminal window if in X. Everything should work now.
Code:
sado@sado-pc ~/ $ adb devices
List of devices attached 
I7500T9UxvXGy9F    device

sado@asdf-pc:~$ fastboot devices
????????????    fastboot

Does this mean it is possible to update the firmware via Linux?

In my attempt to figure it out i did change a few things in the rules files such as: usb 1-6: New USB device found, idVendor=0bb4, idProduct=0c01

so i changed the idVendor and idProduct to match what was connected

Where? When? How?
OK. Ignore second and third one. Was it on this forum? Can you remember? Maybe you have it in your browser history somewhere? I was searching the web, but couldn't find it anywhere. I've searched entire Internet.

If this is possible it would be great to know how.

Agreed. I spent a good chunk of time today looking as well, and could not find anything.

Ended up finally taking a flash drive in to a windows machine at work to upgrade to IK5, but it would really be nice to be able to do this from home.

If this doesn't work for you for fastboot (wasn't working for me), try putting this in 50-android.rules:
Code:
SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="18d1", ATTRS{idProduct}=="d00d", MODE="0666", OWNER="owner"
Where owner is your username.

And reload your udev rules:
Code:
reload udev

I finally got around to playing with this. I have adb working (I think), but I can't get the recovery.img to flash.

Code:
./adb devices
identifies my phone, however
Code:
./fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
hangs on < waiting for device >, although my phone boots into fastboot mode without problem.

I have successfully gotten this to work on xp machines before. Currently using Ubuntu 9.10. Any ideas?


edit: I can successfully push/pull files as well.

There is a lot of variation in the steps to follow, even in this thread. Can you be more specific about what you actually did and at what points you are having troubles?

I had to download a special patched version for adb, nothing else worked for me. No udev rules required, just unpack and run as root:

Well, this binary was in this howto before the new SDK release which was supposed to have Galaxy detection problem fixed. Sometimes it worked for me, sometimes not - it's possible that it worked on 1.5 Galaxo and didn't on 2.1 GAOSP and 1.6 Galaxo (it doesn't work in 4.6 and 5.0 recovery too, but fastboot is ok). Anyway thanks for the clue as it works for me now at 1.6 Galaxo updating howto.

hello guys,

thanks for the HOWTO! alas it's not working for me. after modifying the udev rules as above i have working adb but not fastboot. viz:

$ adb devices
List of devices attached
I75009t3k6ty device
$ fastboot devices
$

(ie. nothing returned at all)

i'm not sure what information to post that might by useful :-/

i tried making the modifications to 50-android.rules as suggested by screeminbug, but it didn't help.

any ideas anyone?

thanks!

Sorry to bump an old thread, but this howto doesn't seem to work for the Epic 4G. Does anyone have adb/fastboot working for this phone? My distro is Debian sid. adb works great under OS X, btw.

Another job for DaSchmarotzer (do your magic).

Btt, sorry friend can't help you there, this IS a Galaxy I7500 thread and I'm sure that no one here has the same phone like you (I'm sorry, if I guessed wrong). Maybe someone on Epic 4G part of the forum can help you. Try your luck there.

Awesome! Thanks for posting this, I was going insane. The "no such file" error is very misleading, that wasn't the problem at all. Just goes to show you, you can't trust the machines *glares at computer*.

I just did a fresh install of the sdk and now I have the issue

sposaro@mobicommand:~/android-sdk-linux_x86/platform-tools$ ./adb
bash: ./adb: No such file or directory

Any help? I've never seen this issue before.

Thanks

That is normal.
You need to make sure that you actually have either a device plugged in, or an emulator running.

Lightbulb Copy adb and fastboot



sudo cp adb /usr/bin/.
sudo cp fastboot /usr/bin/.

This way, you will never need to define path for adb.

Looking for a current link for fastboot. When I try the two that I see in the thread
Welcome to HTCdev
Welcome to HTCdev

I get redirected to htcdev.com. I've registered and signed in but I can't seem to find it. Thanks.

Did some googling and found a post on an ubuntu forum that had fastboot in a post. Worked on my Mandriva 2010 install. Only problem now is adb devices sees my phone but fastboot returns nothing, no errors, not nothing. Any ideas? Thanks.
$ adb devices
List of devices attached
HT0ALHJ11526 device

$ fastboot devices
$
